New Work!

Finally, I have some new jewelry to share with you! I'm really proud of this one as it's easily the most complicated piece I've attempted so far. It's three layers of silver in parts. And as always, each component is sawed by hand (by me, of course!).

Built of sterling silver and chalcedony and designed to shield you from dirty looks, rainy days, nasty rumors, and heavy traffic.

(well... you'll at least feel better about these things if you're wearing this ring!)

This one should be making an appearance in the shop tomorrow, hopefully with at least one other item!

Happy Friday and happy weekend, lovelies!

Well, our weekend was fabulous and as far as I could tell, Aidan's birthday party was  a success (there were no pinata-related injuries, so I'm going with success!). I don't have any pictures to share because I forgot my camera and borrowed a friend's, but didn't get a chance to upload them before I returned the camera. Not sure I got many worth sharing, anyway. It was pretty much a whirlwind of 8 year-old-girl energy!

I have been managing to get short fits of work done in my studio but don't have anything new completed yet. I also have some exams coming up, a toddler who's starting to walk (she took 3 steps in a row today!!), an 8 year old who thinks she's 14, and a full time day job. Hmmm... that may be why I felt compelled to curate this race-against-time treasury, inspired by my favorite movie of all time, Run Lola Run:

Sometimes I feel like I'm waiting for the day when my life will slow down...

but then I realize, I must like it this way!
